Quotes brazen of a Mexico City E-Prix:

 

Roger Griffiths (BMW i Andretti Motorsport Team Principal):

“We have not been holding it easy after a successes in Diriyah and
Santiago. We have been focused on all aspects of a Formula E weekend
to safeguard that we can continue to urge while a fans in Mexico
City are watching. We realize that coherence and avoiding errors are
a pivotal to success in Formula E. The circuit in Mexico City should be
good matched to a strengths of a BMW i drivetrain. Our podium
finish final year showed that. The changes to a lane blueprint should
also have no effect. The downside of a successful start to the
deteriorate is that a dual drivers will have to contest in qualifying
Group 1. However, we consider that this will be reduction of a problem in
Mexico City than on many other circuits. Our aim is to record some
good formula and get into a points with both cars.”

 

Alexander Sims (#27 BMW iFE.20):

“I consider that there have been some unequivocally engaging changes done to
a lane layout, that will hopefully make a racing even better.
The final dilemma in sold is unequivocally prolonged by Formula E standards and
could be a lot of fun. All in all, we consider that those in assign have
managed to urge on what was already a unequivocally cold circuit. we expect
appetite government to play an even bigger purpose than it did final year
though we have a good package and a clever team. We are also confident
adequate to be aiming for some some-more tip results. However, we have been
concerned for prolonged adequate to know that all can change so quickly
in such a hard-fought competition series. That is because we have to stay focused
and work hard.”

 

Maximilian Günther (#28 BMW iFE.20):

“Mexico City is a unequivocally special competition plcae for many reasons. We are
during an altitude of over 2,000 metres, that will positively impact the
cooling system. This lane is also one of only a few on a calendar
that is not a travel circuit. That means that it is far-reaching and not very
bumpy, while also carrying prolonged straights that we can expostulate on at
limit energy. Of course, pushing by a ball lane with
thousands of spectators entertaining us on is a genuine highlight. we am
unequivocally looking brazen to my initial start in Mexico City, as we was
sadly not means to take partial final year.”
